HGTV is holding a sweepstakes for its 4,500 square-foot Smart Home 2020, a hybrid of traditional and industrial design, with fun tech devices from voice assistants to toilets that play music. (Yes, really.)

There can only be one winner for this content. But that doesn't mean you can't pack your own home with the connected furniture highlighted in their giveaway. We matched what we could from HGTV's description, so you too can get these details in case you're not lucky enough to winner this home. All you need is some DIY-attitude and, well, about $30,000.

Smart TV cabinet You can add a smart TV cabinet that can be placed outdoorsCabinet Tronix

Outdoor TV

Let's start with the backyard, or an outdoor living room. There's a pop-up TV that comes up from inside a cabinet. We found a cobinet that could do that — albeit it without the TV — that starts at $5,950 from Cabinet Tronix. Prices likely change depending on the size of the TV you want to put inside. There are tons of great TVs you can put inside. But make sure to check out our GearBrain's TV Buying Guide before you make decision so you understand Ultra HD, HDR, Dolby Vision and other details.

Smart Pet Feeder

In the mudroom of the sweepstakes house there is a smart pet feeder. And this is the one of the most affordable item on the list. We like the PetSafe Smart Feed Automatic Pet Feeder, which Is $294.99 and works with Alexa so you can ask Amazon's assistant to automatically dispense food. You can adjust feeding schedules, monitor when your pet has been fed, and dispense food over different times during the day. There's also a battery backup.

Eight Sleep Eight Sleep has smart mattresses that can adjust their temperatureEight Sleep

Custom smart mattress

In the master bedroom, there's a smart mattress — and while we don't know the size (they don't say) we're just going to assume it's at least a queen. Smart beds have a number of different features including changing its position. But Eight sleep is a custom smart mattress that adjust its temperatures, has sleep tracking and can connect you to meditation tools as well. There's water flowing through the mattress to keep it temperature controlled, and the bed, which Eight Sleep calls a hub, also has sensors woven through the mattress. A Queen starts at $3,095.
